the never ending story…

... for five years, off and on when time and inspiration permit, I have been writing. The story is loosely based on a series of reoccurring dreams I have. When I starting write this particular novel the subject of forced euthanasia seemed inconceivable to comprehend... yet here we are on the brink of it. Even before Obama was a glint in Oprah's eye, her being responsible for his political conception, the story was there in the back on my mind... now the idea is commonplace and not so shocking. I … [Read more...]

Tu parles, tu parlesTu dis mais tu dis rienQue des mots en rafaleSans but et sans lien...Tu déraisonnes D’une voix qui grogne Croyant à l'illusion Que l'on comprend à la force du ton... … [Read more...]

why…

... the worst part of dating is not the horrible dates filled with awkward conversation, the embarrassing social faux pas, or clumsy introductions. For me it's the fear of actually liking the person sitting across from me and then having to decide if they are worthy enough to risk opening yourself up to... and then trying to read the signs for an indication things might be reciprocated. It's that "crap" feeling... "crap; here we go again." Am I up to the task of being emotionally vulnerable? … [Read more...]

I miss R.C.I.A…

... "What?!" you say. While going through the process myself was tortuous and loathsome, I actually enjoyed being a sponsor. Talking with non-Catholics and the curious alike ignites that original fascination and passion I have for the Church. My best friend is a Lutheran, she is dating a Catholic. We can talk for hours about matters of faith. She wants to learn more about Catholicism so she can better understand the person she has feelings for. She says she'll never convert... but I know better. … [Read more...]

welcome to stupid week…

... it's been the week for stupid things. I think this is a record or something. This evening I did the unspeakable... I cut my own bangs. I was just going to trim them, I swear! Then I couldn't stop. I think this is some form of uncontrollable self mutilation and I might need an intervention. … [Read more...]

more stupid things…

... stupid things I do on any given day. The gastrointestional nurse, named Joseph, will not think it's clever if you call him G.I. Joe. Also not funny, suggesting that student nurses practice on prisoners. … [Read more...]

online dating…

... I am calling it "research"; it sounds much less cringe worthy. OK, here goes...Comparing men from two internet dating sources, one Catholic and the other secular, yielded some interesting results. I was surprised to find the majority of the men from the secular site are more receptive, intellectually curious and spiritually open to Catholicism than the ones I have encountered on the Catholic site. Now that is not to say all the men from the Catholic site were not enthusiastic about the … [Read more...]
